THIS VIDEO WAS NOT FILMED ON SHABBAT! recording of sermon Rabbi Danny Bergson rapped for Bar Mitvzah boy Gabe Knopf Pinner June 2015 Parshat Chukkat Lyrics: Gabe you celebrate your barmitzah today Coming to shul with family & friends to pray Pray for man U to do betta next season But the rabbi wants you to know the reason For being a Jew in the twenty first century U need to be proud and loud about your identity Chukkat is your parshah innit we learn a lot Moses hitting instead of speaking to the rock He got angry with the people lost faith in their ability Barred from the holy land losing that possibility We Jews are responsible to connect with one another reaching out to the world do a favour for another (refrain) Each mitvzah we do transforms more darkness to light Building a home for Hashem that’s warm holy and bright Wrapping Teffilin each day may sometimes feel baloney But in truth you’re binding your heart mind n’ soul to the One and Only Sometimes we try but don’t or can’t understand the reason But king Solomon taught for everything there is a season Life has ups and downs and bumps along the road But Torah helps develop the faith to cope – it’s a Jews source code Like a Wi-fi connection gets weaker the further from its source So a Jew must stick close-by his community (in order) to stay on course My advice to you is to stay Jewishly online Step by step each day learn one thing at a time (Refrain) Direction Meaning purpose are what Judaism’s about Don’t let peer pressure and the values on the outside draw you out Never think Judaism frowns on having fun with playstations It’s (about) upgrading your experience to deeper simcha elevations Chessed loving-kindness is in your spiritual genes With such a warm and loving family you will get through those dastardly teens Today as your rabbi and friend I’m so proud of what you’ve become More than just having your mum and dad round your little thumb! A mature kind sensitive fun-loving play station boy Who will march forward, the next link in the Jewish chain filled with joy we anticipate great things from you in the near future Amen we look forward to you taking your place as a Jewish adult time and again Mazal Tov Mazal Tov!
